In brief: Doesn't add up
Cozaar is the trade name for losartan, which is a BP med in the arb (angiotensin receptor blocker) class.
That class does not have cough as a side effect. The angiotensin converting enzyme (ace) inhibitors may have cough as a side effect but not the arb's. If you hava chronic cough on losartan (cozaar) you should talk to your doctor and find the cause: gerd?, asthma?
